The old familiar Year Book appears this year under a new editor, Dr. Sydney Gellis. In form and content the volume is unchanged. As before, it contains an excellent cross section of the pediatric literature of great value to all pediatricians as well as to any physician dealing with children.

Two changes are noteworthy. First is the somewhat more frequent and detailed editorial comment, which retains its instructive value. Second is the frequent use of comment on special problems by guest editors whose comments add considerably to the individual pages discussed, as well as providing an authoritative discussion probably not ordinarily obtained from the experience of a general editor.

Dr. Gellis is to be congratulated on his handling of his first edition of the Year Book.
